No UMD for PSP2?

Xbox 360 horsepower also rumoured.

The PSP2 will have no UMD drive and will feature processing power roughly equivalent to an Xbox 360, according to sources close to Sony.

Kotaku has reported that trusted sources confirmed that the PSP successor will ditch the UMD format and follow the PSPgo's digital-only delivery model. Sony is apparently still deciding on whether the content will be stored on internal memory or on a USB or SD device.

Sources also told the site that Sony's new handheld will boast 1GB of RAM – nearly twice that of the Xbox 360.

Reports earlier this year stated that the portable will have a touch-sensitive control pad on the rear of the device, two cameras and dual analogue sticks.

It's turning into quite the week for Sony hardware leaks, what with this and the PlayStation Phone brouhaha.
